The final event of the cross country season took place at Livingston on Saturday in the form of the Scottish Road Relay Championships and Ronhill Cambuslang continued their success with two team gold medals and one bronze award.
The club had a number of athletes missing due to injuries and to the event taking place
over a holiday weekend. Our resources were further stretched due to the inclusion of an
inaugural 4 man over 50 championship. Nevertheless, the vet over 35 and over 50 teams
secured decisive victories with the junior/senior men gaining the bronze medals for the 3 rd consecutive year. Continue reading
Twins Alex and Kade Thomas clearly showed that Ronhill Cambuslang Harriers are more than just a road and cross country running club by taking both gold and silver over 60 and 200 metres in the under 18 Scottish Championships. Alex just edged ahead of Kade in the two sprint races with both athletes posting personal bests at the two distances. These excellent performances showed that the twins have wintered well under the guidance of their coach Andy Steven and augurs well for the summer outdoor track season.
Ronhill Cambuslang Harriers held their annual open 10K and 3K races on Sunday. Conditions for running were good with no real wind for the record field of 118 participants in the 10K to contend with. Straight from the gun the race developed into a battle between the Cambuslang duo of Davy Munro and Robert Gilroy and remained so throughout the race.

A glorious weekend in the north east of Scotland saw the club’s veteran men return home victorious once again, with 5 individual medals and both M35+ and M50+ team titles being retained, despite only 9 athletes making it to the start line for the men’s race, with 2 of our M65 runners competing in the mixed Ladies / M65+ race.
Almost every one of our athletes could have pulled out of the race due to recent injuries Continue reading
Congrats to our over 35 and over 50 teams who comfortably retained their titles at a windy and cold Strathclyde Park today. Mick O’Hagan stepped into the O35 team after a late call off from the unwell Greg Hastie. Mick (21.56) did his job well to come home in 11th place. Charlie Thomson with the 4th fastest time of the day (19.51) then launched Cambuslang’s advance to take the club through to 3rd place. There was no stopping Kerry Wilson as he cruised round the course to take us into a clear lead and in the process set the fastest time of the day (18.57). Robert Gilroy on the glory leg set the 2nd fastest lap time of 19.27 and increased our lead 3 minutes and 37 seconds over Bellahouston Harriers with Kilmarnock 3rd.
